LEBANON, Ohio — A substitute nurse for two area school districts will spend 60 days in the Warren County Jail and must register as a Tier 1 sex offender for crimes involving a male student, according to Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell.

Delena Clever, 48, pleaded guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor and sexual imposition, Fornshell said.

In August 2018, Clever asked a male student via a text to drive her around because she was intoxicated, Fornshell said. She directed the student to a Deerfield Township hotel where she had rented a room. The prosecutor said Clever made several sexual advances toward the student, and offered him alcohol and marijuana.

The student refused and said he wanted to go home. While driving back, Fornshell said Clever touched the student inappropriately.

At the time, the Maineville woman was a substitute nurse for Little Miami Schools and the Kings Local School district. Kings Local school district officials say she worked at the elementary school three times in 2018. A Little Miami Schools official said Clever worked at a school five times in 2018. The district last paid her on Feb. 5, 2018.

Judge Joseph Kirby sentenced Clever Monday.

“Clever is lucky that the underage student ultimately rebuffed her sexual advances, otherwise she would find herself in a prison cell instead of spending local time in the county jail,” Fornshell said in a written statement.

Information about Clever’s job status was not immediately available.
